Design system component creation
To establish an approach of component creation that significantly decreases time-to-release of new offerings and equips the team to improve this over time.
Ensure alignment of key people to improve rate of success
Define, outline and sequence the work in this approach - with enough clarity to increase team confidence and trust
Facilitate and unblock work, create process artifacts, and author official documentation
Pilot A Process
Define and pilot a new process by which the design system team can create new components
Create a new Alert component for the design system
Document a list of insights to improve this pilot process over the course of multiple iterations
1 / Define scope
Understand and align with the design system director to establish the scope of this initiative.
2 / Draft process
Work with the program manager and a few other folks on the design system team to draft a proposal process for a pilot.
3 / Get sign-off
Get sign-off for the new process workflow from the design system director and product owner.
4 / Pilot the process
Pilot the new process workflow with a small subset of the design system team. Introduce, facilitate, and guide the team as necessary.
5 / Assess and share
Capture retrospective insights from the pilot team on what was learned. Share out the entire set of work with the broader team.
This work was completed over a one month timespan with approximately 50% of my allocation.
